Hearing Issue

My wife recently visited our family doctor to determine why her hearing has beginning to suffer. He stated that her loss of hearing can be cured by hearing aids implanted by a specialist. As much as my wife and I would like for her to have her hearing back, we are very concerned about this sort of treatment. Where do these aids come from? How are these sort of aids placed in the body? I have read that aids is most often deadly around 10 years. We are still debating whether it is worth it or not, but we are learning against this treatment.

Will the hearing aids stay contained within the ears or will it spread to the rest of the body? If it just stays contained in the ears, is it fatal? Will my wife lose her ears?

Please advise as to what would be the best option for my wife. Perhaps we can set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you. I have heard you are most expert on this topic and know that you will be able to answer my questions.

Hi Mr. Kaun –

Normally when someone talks about “hearing aids” they mean electronic devices that can be used to help hear better. I think you might be thinking of the disease AIDS – the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. That would certainly never be deliberately inserted into a person and certainly wouldn’t help hearing.

We would be happy to evaluate your wife’s hearing and talk about what her options are. If you are interested in that, just call the clinic at 621-7070 and they can set up an appointment for you.
